Frequently asked questions
It is an online wholesale buying and selling platform that brings together buyers and sellers to find and to market products and/or services that are shown through offers to sell and requests to receive offers.
B2B Safe is a Marketplace that allows you to negotiate transactions with deferred payment, trading on credit between companies, by means of an online trading system. B2B Safe does not set prices or conditions between the parties and does not handle the payments. These need to be agreed and processed offline by the parties without the intervention of B2B Safe.
B2B Safe is a multisectoral B2B Marketplace. You will be able to find both wholesale products and services from any sector or activity. Sellers can create sales offers located in categories to make them easy to find and buyers can, in turn, create requests to receive offers from the suppliers that interest them.
To be a member of B2B Safe you only have to click on the "Sign up" button within this same site. You will be directed to the platform where you can easily create an account.
After filling in the required fields, you will receive an email with a link to continue with the registration process with the rest of the required information.
As a seller, you should know that once a business transaction is closed between the parties and the order and order confirmation are issued, you may secure it by means of a Trusted Third Party or with a Trusted Third Party plus Blockchain. As a buyer, you should know that all sellers are verified by Atradius Credit y Caución. You can make a payment on credit if you agree this with the seller and so, as in your usual business transactions, you will not pay until you receive the goods or service and check that they are suitable.
By means of a thorough onboarding process and with the support of Atradius Credito y Caución, B2B Safe verifies the identity and suitability of every seller. This means that the sellers present on the platform are trusted specialists in their sector, with recognised experience in selling the products or services they are offering.
Buyers from every country may register and access B2B Safe and so it is an international and globalised platform.
If you cannot find the product or service that you need through the general search engine or category tree, B2B Safe offers you the option of creating and publishing a request to receive offers, which is an announcement of a need so that sellers can contact you to offer you an answer to your need. We will keep your identity anonymous from them.
You can generate a request through the offer publisher, where you will need to fill in the fields relating to the product/service in as much detail as possible as well as the characteristics of the need.
B2B Safe allows you to obtain offers from different suppliers following the current standards of the purchasing departments in the bidding processes: RFi (Request for information), RFq (Request for Quotation) and RFp (Request for Proposal). We also provide you a complete financial report from the seller before completing the purchase process, so that you can make your purchases with complete confidence.
The abbreviations RFi, RFq and RFp refer to common documents in the initial phases of the purchasing process, necessary to generate traceability and transparency, also called RFx in general. RFi (Request for information) is a document whose purpose is to collect information from different providers, RFq (Request for Quotation) is a document whose objective is to request a quote from different providers and RFp (Request for Proposal) is a document whose purpose is to receive proposals from different suppliers for a specific need or demand.
B2B Safe allows sales on credit, at the term established by the seller in its sales conditions. You may negotiate those conditions with the seller in the offer itself. The financial transaction will never be performed on the platform itself, but rather through the offline method established by the seller.
B2B Safe is a platform that brings together companies for business transactions without charging any commissions. The amount of the purchase/sale agreed between the parties is therefore always the final amount, without any intervention by B2B Safe.
Within B2B Safe there is a section called "Negotiations" where you can monitor all the negotiations in progress and you can directly access any of them to continue with the negotiation or to close the transaction.
The B2B Safe platform has a notifications service through which you will receive, whether you are a buyer or a seller, the offers that are published based on the products or services that you have chosen as of interest to you when setting up your business profile.
The trusted third party or trusted service provider files the declarations of intent that make up the electronic contract and intervenes when the parties agree this method for accrediting the conclusion of electronic contracts. Providing proof of digital acceptance of the deal, timestamp and non-modification of the document. It therefore provides neutral assurance that both parties have confirmed the same conditions.
By sending the order confirmation accepted by both parties to Blockchain we are able to guarantee that nobody may alter its content and that it is unchangeable. Blockchain technology proposes a new model in which authenticity is not verified by a third party, but by a network of nodes (computers connected to the network) that participate in the blockchain. Making it possible to store the information at all times in a transparent and secure manner.
